National Tree Day - Kenton Creek gets a vegetation boost

​On Friday 31 July our Biodiversity Team teamed up with the Torrens Valley Lions Club and Gumeracha Primary School to mark National Tree Day through revegetation works along Kenton Creek.

With support and sustenance provided by the Lions Club, our eco warriors planted 950 native trees, shrubs, and grasses in and around the creekline habitats in Federation Park, adding valuable understorey to the magnificent gum trees that have stood for over 200 years.

"We love working with the community on achieving a positive environmental outcome," said Biodiversity Officer Tonia Brown.

"The students, especially, walk away with a great connection to their environment and a proud sense of contributing to its health. They will think of these lessons as they watch their seedlings grow."

Council acknowledges that we conduct our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land.
